I Was Tagged

Melanie tagged me this week for a Six-Word Memoir Meme, and I will be tagging some of you 'cause this was interesting...but not easy. Anyway, here goes:



The Rules:

1. Write your own Six-Word Memoir.

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want.

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.

4. Tag at least five more blogs with links.

5. Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.



So...here's my memoir: Driven by desire...guided by God.

I don't think I am supposed to give some sort of explaination, but just so I don't get comments thinking this is a bad thing, I'll at least explain that it has several meanings. My life fell into a series of patterns from the time I was a baby...as a child was constantly driven by the desire of others. Yet, all the while the Lord's hand led me exactly where I needed to be. Today my own desire drives me to accomplish things that are beyond my complete comprehension, but I am not so driven that I can't allow Christ to take the wheel and guide me.

Ok, so here are the blogs I am tagging:
Nadine
Holly
Teri
BeckyJo
Monica

Happy Meme's!

Ok, I'm like a really bad friend, or not really even worthy to be considered a friend...OR...I'm having "studying while old dementia"

That's it! I have not forgotten I know you! I just don't remember what and who and why because of all of the studying and if you don't "appear" in front of "me" I can't remember!

HELP...I am seriously suffering from "Studying While Old Dementia"!

I did the meme...

Blessings on studying and still being a good friend!
Love in HIM,
Teri

Great job. I posted something today, but will do this next time. I'll have to think about it a little.

I just read your comment over at Nadine's. I blogged a few days ago about hitting a car as I went through a stop sign I had gone through probably 10,000 times over 30 years! It was covered with a tree, it was snowing, it was dusk, and I was thinking of being late for church. But I did it - and the ticket alone was $160! Not to mention the deductible on my insurance, and the extra I had to pay for the rental car, becaue I needed a minivan. All that to say this - it was in Colorado, too!

Hey Girl -

So great to hear from you!!! I'm sorry that I've not responded sooner ... life has been crazy as of late, but wonderful too!! I can't wait to work on my 'meme' ... already rolling it around in my head and will post something soon. I love yours, and your explanation too. Very good, girl. You go! ;-)

I miss you!

Love,
Monica

I heard from Holly's that you guys had a great fun weekend. I hope you got your socks blessed off. Knowing Beth you surely did she speaks a might word of God!

I used to think we had to kill our desires to follow God so I love your adage, your heart. Read an author last week that said---don't abandon your desires, surrender them. Hello to the Queen....Queen K...the Siesta Fiesta blog asked me what hotel we were staying at and my response was this: I'm just with sweet Kate and some hotel...
